MAD MEN

A tribute illustration to MAD MEN which ended its run last Sunday. I don’t know how I really feel about its ending but I think Don in the end finds his happiness in his own emptiness, which I do think is a fitting end for Mad Men. 
But I really wanted the ghost of Lane to appear when Don wrote that million dollar check to Megan.

The Green Joker

 if they ever do a live action version of the clown prince of crime again, I think a really bold and perfect choice would be Eva Green. From her roles she can definitely do crazy/dangerous and dare I say damaged?

Dim Sum Racer


Saw this guy at Dim Sum recently. He had a cool multicoloured racing puffy jacket and flap fur hat. I also just watched Jodorowsky's Dune which features amazing storyboards and illustrations by Mœbius and made me want to draw colourful futuristic people.

Two practice paintings I was planing to execute for art battle Halifax 2014 finals. Unfortunately I only got to do the breaking bad painting as I was knocked out in my round. 
A fun event, and one of the only times painting has seemed like preforming art.
Congrats and good luck to Jake Seibert who won and is representing the Maritimes in the nationals
